    I had an unfortunate female patient who had rapidly progressive MS, with severe muscle spasm who in consequence had trouble with an IGTN - ingrown toenail - (left 1st). She went on to develop leukaemia, and while in hospital for chemotherapy, she developed an acute IGTN. The dilemma faced was if the IGTN was not remedied, and her compromised immune system led to infection, her chemo schedule would have been interupted. If need arose to use LA in treating the ingrown toenail, nobody could advise me if the LA would be effective - I still don't know. In the event, conservative measures were successful; she sadly died from the leukaemia. Does anybody have any views on this unusual situation?
